Why do You Chasten Me?

Is is cowardly to want to survive? Is to hide and run not a tactical strategy? Brother, you need to read the annuals of American history. Let me elucidate you.

George Washington, commander in chief of the continental army employed Fabian strategy on several occasions (see: http://militaryhistory.about.com/od/militarystrategies/p/fab... ).

History recorded Washington saying, “Avoid a general Action,” never “put anything at Risque.” (see: http://www.georgewashington.si.edu/life/chrono_war.html ).

Samadamscw, this will be a protracted struggle for our people. I applaud your bravery and it is greatly needed. But we have to be disciplined in executing a plan that will achieve success. No good is accomplished from a reckless death.
